- there's another copy for sale here -

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Tolkien-Childre ... |65%3A3|39%3A1|240%3A1318

- this one does look right (though it's reproduced smaller). the lines are generally better; and the left eye in particular looks like it's done by a professional artist; unlike the first example.

Also - the drawings are the same! I don't know if Lee did all his 'elf' drawings the same; but I seem to remember a bit more variety when I've seen him doing it!

Here's a link to a book for sale on ebay

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/The-Children-of ... |65%3A3|39%3A1|240%3A1318

- is anyone else unhappy with the drawing (and the signature?) I've seen actual drawings of this kind by Le (indeed, I've seen him doing them) and this one looks wrong.

Check the vendor's other items - there is (or was) an iffy Silmarillion - he'd said it could have been one for Tolkien's approval until he was told that JRR died in 73.

Possibly iffy Lee drawings... Something to watch, perhaps?

For those who both ordered a copy of the 2009 HI calendar and frequent this forum, I mailed out all of the international orders (a couple to the UK, one to Norway, one to Germany, and one to Canada) today. I did not get the order list until last Saturday afternoon (well after the Post Offices had closed) and could not post them during the week (was off on a business trip early on Monday morning.) In any case, they should still arrive well before Christmas (and certainly the New Year.) Hope you like it.

Away from The Green Hill Country,

Parmastahir

Many Thanks for the information. Very much appreciated. I suspected it was probably just a reprint edition. Goodness knows why Amazon show it to be published in Oct 2008 though.

Many Thanks Again.

It is a reprint... not a new edition. The last batch has sold out...

So the last edition with pull-out letters has sold 32,000 copies; miniature edition sold 15,000 when released in 1999. Now the book is being reprinted, but will not undergo any changes (according to David Brawn, last time I spoke him)
